Land owners I this area need more government support to keep these sites available for public access. I feel for the... More

It is a bit of a walk up to the caves but very much worth it. Great history lesson for the whole family. You will even see some wildlife amongst the rocks.

Tried to go here. This is closed indefinitely. A local aboriginal person was quiet rude to me when I enquired why I couldn't access this site. I have never been named by such appaling terms in my life.

We were really looking forward to checking out these caves but when we got there the signed said it was closed (no reason given). We drove as close as we could to it and on closer inspection - the pathway was no longer there (not clear walkway) and since it was an Aboriginal site we decided to respect its closure.... More

Very disappointed to find that these caves are still closed as at November 11, 2014 - is this another case of inhibitive Public Liability costs?

Driving to Flinders Ranges this site is just a few km off the main road. We came in very hot weather and also had to cope with the flies. Wish we had brought hats with build-in mosquito nets. The trip to cave 1 takes 15 minutes and a steeper climb in the end via some stairs. Not the most suitable... More

We first arrived after our drive from Adelaide and decided that given it was suggested to give yourselves one hour to see all the caves we decided to visit the following morning. Although we arrived early it quickly warmed up and we had a large entourage of flies accompany us! The hike up to the first cave was a bit... More

a long walk in on a hot day, should have worn a hat and taken water! Caves were brilliant to see, very special. Scaffolding was intrusive but helpful
